This is a plant grown in the Phils..photo shared to me by my friend.
Right now it is summertime in the Philippines, temp ranging low of 79F to high of 94F that feels like 105F with humidity during daytime.

Sadly, no name..thankful for anyone who knows what it is. Smiling

My first thought was maybe Telosma cordata http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telosma_cordata but I'm not sure that's it.

It sure is pretty so I will be curious as to the name too. Maybe someone will come along soon and recognize it! The more I look at photos of Telosma, it doesn't look the same.

Try googling the name and viewing the images. You'll see that this plant's leaves show variability depending on their stage of growth and do look like your friend's plant. Also, I don't see any open blooms in your photos. The yellow parts are either bracts or calyces. There is a cream flower bud developing in the top-most bract/calyx in your last photo.

See the bud in the center of the red circle:

Also, consider that your friend's plant is likely stressed from being in a small pot so the leaves are not going to be as large or as green as one planted in the ground.

Sure looks like Petraeovitex, if not P. bambusetorum maybe P. wolfei? http://www.mynicegarden.com/2009/10/petraeovitex-wolfei.html

That is why I asked my friend to see if she can take a closer photo of the blooms. Manila is just about waking up now..so hopefully she saw my message.

Hmmm, most sources I'm seeing are saying that Petraeovitex bambusetorum and Petraeovitex wolfei are synonyms but a few don't. Shrug! I've no clue...

Good idea, Tarev! Seeing the actual flower will make it much easier to identify. Smiling
